Announcing Kong Summit 2021: Developing the Connected World

The Importance of API Management Governance

Peter Kreiner-Sasady, INVIXO

API management gives your organization a fantastic toolbox that enables digital transformation. In order to properly utilize these tools and gain the value a service mesh provides, it is important to define a proper governance framework and define your organization’s rules regarding:
– Roles and responsibilities for development and a development portal
– Service mesh vs. event mesh
– API patterns and policies
– Naming standards and metadata for applications and APIs
– API lifecycles
– Service mesh vs. integration platform
– Monitoring, KPIs and distribution of this information

During this session, we will go through the framework and show an example of how this adds value to your organization’s use of Kong.
